I can't wait till E3 2012 when they finally announce the entire line up and we can stop speculating It better not suk.
They're definetely going to announce some characters during E3, but I highly doubt they'll anounce the "entire" lineup. I honestly, don't think even the devs know 100% who they want in the game considering they still have like 8 months to work on the game, and if they announce the entire lineup than the hype will die down...
If they put Solid Snake or Naked snake, they for sure need to put in the codec easter egg, similar to the one in Smash Bros. Brawl (see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sDVtDOxXGQ&feature=relmfu)
Also, it'd be interesting to see what kind of ability/abilities sackboy would have if he made it into there.
Yeah this game look awesome. I'm just concerned if it's too much like Smash Bros, but then again we've seen clones like SNK's Fatal Fury and King of Fighters being very much like Street Fighters so I don't let the Smash Bros bother me that much. Anyway I hope they put these characters in there:
OK I know Kratos (God of War), Sly Cooper, Radec (Killzone), Sweet Tooth (Twisted Metal), Fat Princess, and Parappa will be in the game, but I know other characters that should be in the game:
Ratchet and Clank
Jak and Daxter
Gabe Logan (Syphon Filter)
Nariko (Heavenly Sword)
Leonard (White Knight Chronicles)
Jaster Rogue (Rogue Galaxy)
Jeanne D'arc (Jeanne D'Arc)
Nathan Hale or a Chimera (Resistance series)
I wish there were more characters we could add I'll take any 3rd party character
Speaking of comparison with Super Smash Bros, I don't know if anybody else thought of this beside me, would you want to see Nintendo and Sony pulling a "Capcom vs SNK" crossover game with characters from both company fighting each other. Who wouldn't want to see Sackboy fighting Mario? Jeanne D'arc fighting Link or Bowser taking on Kratos? That would be cool for me since both All-Stars Battle Royale and Smash Bros very much have similar gameplay, why not do a crossover? Capcom and SNK did it, Sony and Nintendo should try it, it could help reduce and maybe probably eliminate fanboyism if 2 companies did this. It would be kinda strange to see Mario or any Nintendo characters on a Playstation console (or a Playstation characters on a Nintendo console), but hey I want Sony and Nintendo to be the first non-Capcom/non-SNK/non-Namco Bandai to do a intercompanies crossover fighting game. my problem is can they agree to do this, and if they did what would the title be:
Super Smash Bros X Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale
Sony vs Nintendo: Mark of the Millenium 20XX
Sony X Nintendo: Colossal showdown
